The watcher in the shadows – Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Zafon is one of my favourite authors – he is probably more well know for his adult fiction series – The shadow in the wind .  His cross-genre mix of mystery, romance, thriller  and fantasy make for riveting reading. 

The watcher in the shadows tells the story of Irene and Ishmael. Irene has moved to Blue Bay far away from the life of luxury she has been used to. Her mother now forced to earn a living, housekeeps for the reclusive toymaker Lazarus (his name will be a clue for some!!). Irene and her brother have the run of most of the house, except for one wing. Lifesize toys fill the main rooms and create an air of wonder.

Ishmael’s cousin also works at the ‘big house’ and it is through her that he meets Irene. The house is full of secrets and mysterious events seem to be taking hold of their lives…….

A great read!
